Very rough first attempt at PONTKALLEG - notes sound cut off - need to really work on the flow of tone from note to note.
Hi Ed. I'm betting you could fix/improve the flow if you spend another week on this one. I could tell the fingernail loss gave you trouble with the chords at the end. My fake thumbnail gave me fits (a plastic nail against the strings makes for a tinny sound I believe), so maybe the best thing to do is to just let them grow back out. And WEAR GLOVES next time
I think this piece was more difficult than it looked, and it took me longer to smooth things out than I originally thought it would. I'm still working on my version, my post (right below yours) is a little rough around the edges yet. Since you were out of town and missed some practice time, you may want to focus on this one versus diving into Brian Boru's March (after all, they're optional....) Or maybe try working on the first half instead of trying to master the whole thing.
In any event, I see an amazing improvement over last year!
